Inside linebacker Jonas Griffith was one of only two defensive starters playing for the Broncos on Saturday night. He injured his left elbow on the second play.
Griffith told Troy Renck of Denver7 that he dislocated his elbow and hopes to return in roughly six weeks.
Griffith played 13 games with four starts last season and totaled 46 tackles, two quarterback hits and a fumble recovery. But he appeared to have won the starting job for 2022 alongside Josey Jewell. Now, that job likely falls to free agent signee Alex Singleton.
The Broncos, though, perhaps will have to look for some help behind the starters with little proven depth.
